    Just day dreaming what I'm going to add to our tank next. Here's what we have:
    2 male platys
    1 glotetra
    1 algae eater
    15 fancy tail guppies
    1 male bettA
    1 ADF
    And in. 30 gallon tank.

    What next? I know we need more tetras I was unaware they were schoolers until I came here but there are so many kinds! Not wanting female platys at all, my bachelors are fat and happy.

    If this is your algae eater,

    my first advice would be to get rid of it! It will soon outgrow your tank and probably kill everthing in it.

    Yes your tetra needs to be kept in a bigger school, at least 8, but you have so many guppies I don't think you could add any more, IMO.

    Nope! My algae eater is tiny... And in a 30 gallon? I think we could do some more.. All my fish are under 3". The guppies are 1.5 full grown.

    what type of algae eater is it? It might be small now... but could end up huge...

    Here are a few common algae eaters to look up and compare
    Otocinculus
    Common Pleco
    Bristlenose Pleco
    Rubber Lip Pleco

    I also see an issue with the betta and guppies... that could cause problems

    What is a ADF?

    Also the tetras I'm currently considering are black skirt or Columbians

    Looks like a Cory of some sort? Also a schooling fish, not an algea eater.

    Looks like an emerald cory catfish. They get to be about 3" and are harmless. They do prefer to be in groups though. But I don't know if your tank can take it.
